Events on November 4

We thought of doing a series of articles on some of the places to be in if you want to enjoy November. So, here goes.

The Best Of November 2009 – What’s on where and when ?

Nov 4 to Nov 6
Whisky Live Festival
November is without doubt WHISKY MONTH! The FNB Whisky Live Festival returns to CAPE TOWN and JOHANNESBURG with its annual showcase of whiskies from around the world. The South Africa premium whisky market has shown incredible growth over the past year, with South Africa now the 6th in the world by volume. This year’s show has a palate-teasing offering of over 180 whiskies and includes at least four new product launches which will be available for sampling for the first time.
Once again the FNB Whisky Live Festival will comprise two main parts: The Tasting Hall and the Whisky Workshops. Grab your tasting glass, tasting vouchers and a whisky handbook and set off on your whisky journey, savouring whiskies from Scotland, America, Ireland, and South Africa. Meet the whisky master distillers at the various stands and understand their passion for this remarkable drink. New innovations in the Tasting Hall this year include the Back to Basics Zone – an interactive display of “what makes whisky “whisky”.
Mouth-watering workshops for both the greenhorns and the pros! The workshops are hosted by master distillers and global ambassadors and run concurrently to the Tasting Hall in a separate meeting room. They last approximately one hour and you will get to taste a range of approximately 6 or 7 different whiskies.

Nov 4 to Nov 8
JazzFest Berlin
All Jazz enthusiasts should make a trip to Berlin during the snazzy JazzFest Berlin. The theme of this year’s festival is “Blue Note: 70 years”, honouring the famed jazz record label. The founders of the label, Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff, were both natives of Berlin and a variety of events during the festival will take place linked to Blue Note. Get into the mood as you attend recitals and orchestral
Performances by internationally acclaimed artistes. And after you have had your fill of music, you could go around the city, taste local
Delicacies, and experience the cultural heritage of Berlin.
